TCTI: Too Crazy To Ignore

Justin Bieber made his first visit to jail.

The charge - drag racing on a Miami street doing 60 in a 30 zone while at the wheel of a yellow Lamborgini, under the influence of beer and pot.

And the video was immediately posted by a group of female fans who suddenly found themselves witnesses to history.

I thought teenage girls only talked like that on sitcoms. That why it's called Twitter. Police also arrested Bieber's racing partner and best friend R&B singer Khalil Sharieff.

"The total bond would be $2,500," said the judge.

And for that, Bieber gets his first mug shot, and becomes an officially certified Bad Boy. And for those of you shaking your heads and wondering, "Where are the parents?"

Good news, according to TMZ, Dad was right there! TMZ reports Bieber's father Jeremy actually helped to block the street so the two boys could have their race without hurting anybody. So that sounds like pretty responsible parenting.

The only problem was they chose a street where the speed limit was 30. But they've learned their lesson. Next time they'll plan better and choose a street where the speed limit is 60.
